  • THE BRIEF
  • Ara Wines reflect the purity of the place they come from. Fusing the time-honoured art of winemaking with fresh ideas, we amplify and refine the natural qualities of the remarkable Wairau Valley location. The result is a strikingly different Marlborough, New Zealand experience.

    Sourced from across our Estate in Marlborough's Wairau Valley, Ara Single Estate are intensely flavoured wines that amplify the remarkable valley story. These consistent, flavoursome wines tell the tale of making Ara wines on the edge of the world.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Juice was fermented at moderate temperatures (14-16C) using a combination of classic Sauvignon Blanc yeasts. This ensured distinct varietal definition and fruit purity, and a textural palate. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to age in tank on light lees to further add weight and texture to the wine, before being racked, blended and filtered in preparation for bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    This aromatic Sauvignon Blanc shows classic Wairau Valley blackcurrant on the nose, backed up with citrus blossom and hints of wild herbs. The palate is beautifully fresh, with lively acidity and grapefruit flavours. Tropical fruit flavours give a natural sweetness to the wine, which finishes crisp, refreshing and dry.

    SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT


    Intense and powerful, the fabulously fragrant bouquet shows passionfruit, mango, kaffir lime and feijoa characters with a hint of musky complexity. The palate is concentrated and succulent, and delivers waves of delectable fruit flavours, brilliantly supported by bright acidity. At its best: now to 2020.'

    Tangy, lively sauvignon with good weight and moderately concentrated lime, grapefruit, green capsicum and gooseberry flavours. Impressive poise and purity.'
